The GMHS Choral Department has been seen as a formal fine arts department for many decades.  Students are asked to sing collegiate level music and therefore deserve to feel as though they are performing at the collegiate level.  Our concert attire is required so that all students performing together feel a part of our successful group.  In this section you will learn what is and is not proper concert attire including Savvi formalwear information.

Ladies:

Ladies dresses will be ordered for incoming freshman, new members, or current members who need to purchase a new dress. Each choral ensemble will have the same dress so that a student may keep her dress throughout her four years in the program. The dresses are black, floor length and washable. The cost is $80, which includes hemming. If in need of financial support, please see Ms. Godfrey privately.

Ladies’ shoes should be very plain, low heel (no more than 1.5 in heel) black shoes. No open toes, no sandals, no straps, no laces, no buckles, nothing shiny, etc.

Performance jewelry policy: for all formal performances (i.e. anywhere you wear choral dresses and tuxedos) students will wear only the jewelry required as part of the chorus outfit. Die Meistersingers ladies are required to purchase the pearl/earring necklace set through the dress company for $12. Ladies may wear stud earrings – no hoops. Ladies should not wear wristwatches or bracelets.

Gentlemen:

New gentlemen will receive information regarding purchasing this attire. Uniforms for beginning men are around $78 and tux coats for DM are around $80. The tuxedo company we work with, Savvi Formalwear, offers free alterations every year for our male chorus members. Therefore, if you grow from one year to the next, your tuxedo will be altered free of charge!

Gentlemen MUST wear black socks and black dress shoes!
